Two recipes from the "Fancy Cakes" chapter in Baking Chez Moi were selected for our Tuesdays with Dorie baking projects this month. Both were quite easy to make with only two components each yet the results made them deserving of the "fancy cake" moniker. Don't you love recipes like that?
This week I'm featuring Betty's Chocoholic Cake comprising layers of moist brownie-type cake and luxurious chocolate ganache. Dorie mentions filling, topping or serving the cake with
whipped cream so I added a third component, cocoa whipped cream filling,
cocoa-flavoured so it wouldn't interfere with the "totally
chocolate" effect of the cake.
The varying textures and
chocolate intensity of the components worked beautifully together to create this ultimate chocolate indulgence....one of the best things I've made so far from this book according to family.
